Photomicrographs: histological sections of mice liver samples. Pictures were taken under original magnification of 400X. a Liver section from the control group demonstrating normal liver architecture with intact nucleus (IN), and normal sinusoids (NS); b Liver section from CCl4 induced damaged liver demonstrating highly deformed liver architecture with round congested portal vein (PV), bile duct proliferation (BdP), fatty lesion due to intensive fatty infiltration (FI), sign of necrosis (N), dilated sinusoid (SD), leukocyte infiltration (LI); c Liver section from CCl4 induced damaged liver demonstrating fibrosis (FB); d Liver section from Silymerin treated group demonstrating improved hepato-cellular architecture with normal sinusoids and intact nucleus (IN); e Liver section from low dose LFE (100 mg/kg of body weight) treated group showing sign of necrosis (N) [of lesser degree compared to the CCl4 group]; f Liver section from high dose LFE (250 mg/kg of body weight) treated group showing improved liver architecture with normal sinusoids (NS) and intact nucleus (IN)
